2015 PARK(ing) Day Pittsburgh Map
For anyone wanting to bike to each park, a group is meeting Friday at 10am (ride departs at 10:15) at Dippy the Dinosaur in the plaza near Carnegie Museum/Library in Oakland (Forbes and Schenley Dr. Extension). The ride will be relaxed and slow-paced – riders of all skill levels are welcome.
PARK(ing) Day is an annual, one-day, international event in which artists, designers, activists and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces.
The event is an opportunity to have people think about how important public spaces are and how parks improve our communities. These park installations aim to transform urban environments designed for vehicle use into a communal space for public use.PARK(ing) spaces come in all sizes and styles. It could be an art installation, interactive demonstration, place to sit, or showcase for urban farming and gardening. A park bench, tree and grass works too! There are countless of imaginative ways to transform a metered parking space. For inspiration, you can view images of previous-year spots at http://parkingday.org/.
National PARK(ing) Day is an all-volunteer effort. All are welcome to participate.
